Hey everyone, hope you had a great week. NYFW is upon us and I honestly couldn't care less for it. It's honestly overrated; another topic for another day! Moving on, I've noticed that a lot of you dolls have been asking me where I get my swimsuit from. Im dedicating this whole blog post just about that.
Swimsuits were such a hassle at the beginning when I gained a lot of weight, I couldn't figure out what may or may not work. I went from a size medium for my bottoms to a size large or extra large depending on how the brand works. My breast also had gotten bigger and now a size small for tops half were way too small so I had to go up to a medium but sometimes that wouldn't work. Shopping for bathing suits is like shopping for denim, it's a freaking struggle but once you find the perfect one it's worth it at the end. The best thing to do is to measure, I know its such a cliche answer BUT it makes shopping online soooooo much easier. It's important that you measure your bust, waist, and hips. When I did that everything was a breeze! I can't remember the last time I ever had to return a swimsuit again. Buy yourself a measuring tape and measure up those parts I promise you, you will not regret it!
Below I picked some of favorite swimsuits that are specifically for us curvy/plus size babes, shop away :)
